Everyone associated with the planning and execution of Infrastructure Projects should be familiar with the basic construction equipment required for safe construction. During project planning it essential to understand the capabilities and limitations of constriction equipment. As well as the space required and the setup time to make heavy equipment operational. H.R.3684 - Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act 11/15/21 The Bipartisan Infrastructure Act will rebuild America’s roads, bridges and rails, expand access to clean drinking water, ensure every American has access to high-speed internet, tackle the climate crisis, advance environmental justice, and invest in communities that have too often been left behind. Now that funds are available, the challenge is to develop the workforce necessary to successfully execute this ambitious program. We have compiled eighteen one-hour classes focused on the basic means and methods of constructing Infrastructure Projects. The media rich content demonstrates construction details common to a wide variety of projects and will be invaluable to designers, builders and owners and help to insure successful outcomes.
